On-Site or In-Clinic Flu Vaccination Programs
The Society of Human Resource Managers (SHRM) reports that the influenza virus is responsible for more than 100 million lost workdays during the flu season each year.
Other financial impacts include:
- $7 billion in lost wages.
- More than $10 billion in company productivity
- 80 percent of the workers showed up on the job despite having flu symptoms
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), flu vaccinations should begin soon after vaccine becomes available, ideally, in October. Seasonal influenza activity peaks in January or later. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop to protect against influenza virus infection. The CDC recommends vaccination against the flu every season. The primary reason is the body’s immune response from vaccination declines over time. Therefore, annual vaccination provides optimal protection. Secondly, flu viruses are constantly changing. The formulation of the flu vaccine is reviewed each year and is updated to keep up with changing flu viruses.
